Three Simple Tea Sandwich Recipes!

May 3, 2018

 

Tea sandwiches are so yummy, simple, and pleasing to the eye for any event you may plan to throw! I will sometimes make these for baby showers, tea parties, or even a simple ladies night with my girls! I always enjoy experimenting with new recipes, and below I've listed my favorite three of all time. Enjoy!

 

You're Such a Ham! - Ham & Dijon Mustard Sandwiches 

 

This yummy sandwich is the simplest and quickest of all 3 recipes. Here's what you will need:

 

Ingredients:

  • Sliced Bread (I used wheat)

  • Sliced Ham

  • Dijon Mustard

 

Directions:

  1. Take two slices of bread and cut off all four edges using a serrated knife.

  2. With one of the slices, add Dijon mustard. Spread this mustard on your bread with a knife

  3. Place the sliced ham on top of the mustard, and close the sandwich by adding the second slice of bread on top of the ham

  4. Next, cut the sandwich diagonally to form two triangles

  5. Last, cut the sandwich diagonally again from the opposite end to form four small triangles

  6. Place these on your serving tray & Enjoy!

 

Take Me To Alaska! - Smoked Salmon & Dill Sandwiches 

 

From a flavor perspective, this recipe is probably my favorite! Here's what you will need:

 

Ingredients:

  • Sliced Bread

  • Cream Cheese

  • Smoked Salmon

  • Fresh Dill

  • Ground Pepper

 

Directions:

  1. Take two slices of bread, and cut off all four edges using a serrated knife 

  2. Next spread on a thin layer of cream cheese on one of the slices

  3. Next, take thin slices of your smoked salmon, and place it on top of the cream cheese

  4. Following this, clean and chop up some fresh dill (I do not recommend the dry kind, use fresh) and sprinkle a few sprigs of this on top of your salmon. Be careful to not put too much dill since this is a strong herb

  5. Ground some fresh cracked pepper on top of your sandwich & add the second slice of bread on top as a closure

  6. Next, cut the sandwich diagonally to form two triangles

  7. Last, cut the sandwich diagonally again from the opposite end to form four small triangles

  8. Place these on your serving tray & Enjoy!

     

Cool as a Cucumber - Cucumber Tuna Sandwiches

 

From a table setting perspective, these lovelies are probably my favorite to place on my cake stand and to eat! Here's what you will need:

 

Ingredients:

  • Sliced Bread

  • 2 Cans of Tuna

  • ¼ Cup Mayonnaise

  • ½ Cup Sour Cream

  • ½ Lemon (Fresh Juice)

  • 1 Cucumber

  • ¼ tsp Onion Powder

  • Salt & Pepper

     

 

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the following ingredients: Tuna, Mayonnaise, Sour Cream, Onion Powder, and a dash of salt and pepper

  2. Next, cut your lemon in half and squeeze the juice of half a lemon into the bowl. Mix again until all ingredients are combined well

  3. Next, wash your cucumber, take a mandoline, and run your cucumber across the setting that will create thin slices. I recommend keeping the skin on to create a nice green color on the outside of your sandwich. Set aside

  4. Take two slices of bread. For ease of cutting, I recommend using a serrated knife to cut off all four edges

  5. Add a thin coat of mayonnaise on top of one slice

  6. Next add your thinly sliced cucumbers top of the mayonnaise spread. Cut the edges off the cucumber to match the edges of your bread

  7. Now turn one of your slices of cucumber bread to the other side, with the cucumbers facing down. Take the mixture from your large bowl and spread this on the dry side of your bread.

  8. Take the other slice of bread with the cucumbers facing up towards you, and place this on top of the tuna sandwich

  9. Cut the sandwich diagonally to form two triangles

  10. Cut the sandwich again from the opposite side have four small triangles. Enjoy!
